Copy the image address, click the image feature and paste in the image address link. Should work.

You can put the image link between this

[img=-image link-]

Or use the automatic thing like Sofie suggested.

Hello Dark,

A good way to put photographs on the forums is to upload them to a website called Imgur, this allows you to upload them without making an account and it also give's you the code which you can easily copy and paste to use on forums, it also works for any type of format!

First, you should click on the " New Post " Icon at the top of the page, then find the photo you want to upload... Then either select it or drag and drop it, then click okay.

Once you have done this, you can then put your mouse over the photo and a drop down arrow will come up, highlight your mouse over that and then click " Get share links " and then copy the BBCode!

Then, paste it on your PM/Forum! and it should come up! It's as simple as that my dude!

Might just be the way dropbox uploads pictures, can you try to get puush? I downloaded your picture and re-uploaded it to puush and it works.

Try to PM this link: http://puu.sh/rBhQF/ecf63d8da8.png

Ok as Castiel said in this thread you need to use the image address. To do so you need to right click on the image you want to use and "copy image address"

It won't work with images uploaded on a dropbox. I just tried it and it didn't work for me at least.

If you right click the image on Dropbox copy image address and insert it as a image it works
